The most stunningly extended and renovated cottage set in gorgeous surroundings of Upper Dean, this is Elm Cottage.
 
This fabulous cottage with views of the neighbouring church and meadows has been brought back to life by the current owners who have lovingly restored it’s character whilst modernising to an extremely high standard.

Vendor Insight
We were looking for a rural countryside project with original character that we could make our own and into a modern living space. We found Elm Cottage and immediately had to offer. We were so excited by the property we even started the planning and working with conservation before the sale completed!
We have put so much time, effort and money into the property to make sure it retained its original sense of a character cottage. There’s so much that goes into a house like this that you don’t even end up seeing but makes it worthwhile for the final result. Things like making sure the exact brick and style of mortar were used when creating new openings in existing brickwork or tiles that were carefully removed to be reused when the new roof structure was finished. All these details mean you wouldn’t know anything has changed from the outside and it’s hard to tell where the old finishes and the new starts.

 
The accommodation has been extended to 1300 sqft comprising three double bedrooms including master with ensuite, bathroom, kitchen dining room, utility room and living room.
 
The original entrance door has been reinstated to access a welcoming entrance hallway and adapted layout. To the left we have all three bedrooms including the feature master bedroom with ensuite and high vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and patio door access to the newly landscaped patio area. The perfect setting for a morning coffee.
The family bathroom has also been inspired by luxury hotel vibes, with a beautiful four piece sweet including stand-alone bath, walk-in shower with inset shelving and LED lighting. The bathroom, much like the rest of the property, features vaulted ceiling with roof light for natural lighting.
 
The kitchen dining room of this cottage is superbly elegant. A kitchen island with Quartz work surface is a centre piece to a minimalist yet warm and welcoming space with view to the garden and accessed with bi-folding doors, amazing for the summer months to create superb indoor-outdoor living. There is also an incredibly practical utility room with feature stable door.
 
Possibly the most impressive feature of this home is the sitting room. This room was added by the current owners to create the perfect blend of space, style and character. Vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, fireplace with wood burning stove all add for a modern yet cosy feel. Combine this with a cantilevered opening for pillarless and uninterrupted views of the landscaped garden, you have yourself one incredible room.
 
The outside has received just as much care and attention throughout the renovation. A vast patio surrounded by contemporary slatted fencing can be accessed from nearly all of the internal rooms. There’s a good lawn accompanied by a paved path leading to a storage outbuilding and feature garden unit currently used as a gym with outside decking accommodating a hot tub.
 
Upper Dean is an idyllic village, nestled in picturesque countryside and known for its charming rural setting with a strong village community. Although a small village, there are a range of basic amenities including a local pub, a few small shops and local businesses that supply everyday essentials. There is also a primary school.
An additional benefit is the proximity to larger towns such as Kimbolton and Bedford, where more extensive shopping, dining, and healthcare facilities can be found.
